Film night – Time Trial at Duke of Yorks 12th July

time trial film BMCC

OK nerdy cyclists here’s a film about time trials – your partners will love it

maybe better to go as a group

TIME TRIAL gives us an exhilarating and terrifying place in the race, providing an immersive experience as close to actually competing as you will ever see on film. David Millar, shrouded in darkness, declares an intention to rise again.

David Millar he’s a bit marmite, respect him, hate him, think he wears strange clothes – either way lets see the film and debate it over a pint in the pub after

It is on at the Duke of Yorks picturehouse at Preston Circus – there are a few pubs nearby

I’m investigating what can be done for a group booking

Post Ride Giro, Coffee, Beer and Kit at Porteur May 26th

Yates, Froome, Dumoulin or who? – the Queen stage of the Giro will decide (and decide the winner to the velogame probably)

Join us post ride at 12.30 ish for a beer/coffee/cake at Porteur

ALSO

Paul Kit Kommandant will be bringing some kit along for us to try for size

ALSO

If you fancy selling some mitre kit ( because you’ve turned into a racing snake/ racing whale ) bring it down – first ever Mitre second hand kit sale
